Aroma Characteristics: This French Saison Ale yeast strain brings all the sophistication and complexity of classic saison ale production to the home brew and small brewery setting. Spicy and peppery characteristics are prominent with an undertone of the ubiquitous fruity character.
Flavour/Mouthfeel: This is a highly characterful yeast strain that will dominate all but the highest hopping rates and complex malt bills.
